Day 4 and I'm still down. I might have been able to go in today but woke up sick- head cold...so I stayed home. I am still quite sore, in different spots. I've been through way worse but wasn't expecting the bruising and soreness, I figured the laser thing would be easier. I also have 24 little holes all along my leg and behind my knee and thigh.
The Hub came home late last night and liked all the house changes! Silly man wanted to know why I bought a white door though- its primer I told him. He's now off selling the last of the fish and can relax for a couple weeks. I wanted to make him a good dinner but tonight he gets a hot sandwich- I don't feel we'll enough to cook anything. He needs fattening up, he lost 20 lbs out there.

2. Exercise- do something every day
3. Get organized- mise en place
4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.
Every day this side of the sod is a good day- not sure who said it

Happy Bday! I sometimes look back at photo albums when my daughter was young, and we had such special times, especially around the holidays and birthdays. It always makes me tear up. Then they grow up, and we are pushed down the priority list a bit.
But you are loved and healthy and active. What a blessing - go easy on the Bday cake. Save a piece for me.

Can you move to be closer to your kids? We always say we plan to retire near our kids. Or a place so wonderful, they visitbus a lot. I am slowly weaning James, finally. So, I have put on some weight and look much healthier. Now, I have to go back to normal eating. I ate all day long when nursing and was still underweight.
Woubbie, rip some heads off for me too please! I woke up tired and crabby. I have itchy welts and my eyelids itch and are puffy - big allergic reaction. And it is probably to vegetable seed dust.
I've never had allergies and this is really frustrating me. I feel miserable! Eye make-up actually seems to help which is a good thing because I'm a total make-up 'ho - I can't imagine NOT wearing it. I still want to stick my fists in my eyes and just scrub but that would also hurt because the skin is inflamed and sensitive. I may end up going to the doctor but I'm going to try some natural/non-pharmaceutical treatments for now. I think it is not all varieties of seed dust because the reaction really varies, and the only variable at work is whatever is coming in the mill door on any given day.
Shuffling paperwork and itching my eyes with one fingernail at a time... Dentist client after work and then a dog walk if I get home in time.
Yup, I need Woubbie to do some head ripping on my behalf.

Good Morning All! Today is the day of my birth 65 years ago. I've been on an emotional journey the last couple of weeks. I wanted to cry to release all that pent up energy. I had a massage last week with the hopes that she could release that type of energy. She did get the tears to drop a little. Yesterday I went to an entirely new massage therapist. I shared that my goal was to get release thru crying. She said that she would use some techniques. It took almost an hour but I was able to sob. I felt much better.
The challenge that I deal with is that my grown children live so far away. I have friends, I have joy . . .but sometimes it over whelms me that my life is empty from the children I raised. Their lives are complicated (I remember what that was like). They have children & spouses that require lots of time (I remember what that was like).
So, once or twice a year I sit on the pitty potty. If I would just give into the pity . . .I'd probably get over it faster. My style is to workout . . . visit . . write in a journal . . .meditate . . .but I forget to acknowledge & feel.
I'm a very lucky resourceful woman! I have a Great life. I did good! I'll continue to do good! LOL! Hugs to surround us all! Life marches on . . .I'm 65 & still teaching power classes, I'm healthy . . . I'm loved and I have decisions to make every single day! YIPPEE! Connie
Hugs to Surround Us All as a Group! Connie, in WI The pleasant thought for me today is _______________. Show Up Today . . . Set your shoulders . . Put On a Smile And DO IT

Sounds like you're at least looking at it positively! You'll be ripped by the end of the 3 months!!!
I actually just came here to post the exact opposite! I am about 9 days in and I feel like I'm about to burst with energy right now, it's so weird. I never feel like this in the morning. I am NOT a morning person! haha, well, I wasn't a morning person???
Every day I just feel really excited, I feel like I'm ready for success, it feels like the night before Christmas all the damned time! I can't wait to hit my goal but I know I have months and months, it's frustrating! Anyway, that's my rant!
Woke up this morning to no power. Figured this was a sign that I shouldn't go to the Y this morning, but unfortunately the power came back on. Didn't swim as much as usual - too tired. Made an appointment to meet with a Wellness Coach next Monday about upper body exercises. If I'm going to be using a walker, crutches or cane for two or three months, I'm going to need some extra upper body exercises. There's a lot of me that will have to be supported!
